    Interstellar trailer

    Here's a much more positive take on the trailer. Also kind of 'spoilery' so only check it out if that doesn't bother you.

    Re: Tumblr posts

    The way Matt talks about her, Alexia seems very grounded. Not a surprise, I guess, when you consider her parents, but still an accomplishment.

    I guess they are spending the whole summer in Costa. Color me jealous. Matt makes a very handsome beach bum! Love the look. And no hat!?

    It's nice to see him without a hat and without his hair styled. Like!

    Film Festival

    Matt going to the Havana Film Festival? I'm not sure if he is going or if he has just been invited.

    Interstellar

    Absolutely LOVE the new Interstellar trailer. I've considered nolan overrated, but this looks like it could be really good, and have lots of cross generational appeal.

    Re: Interstellar

    I'm with Jeff Wells and hate the emotional manipulation, use of Dylan Thomas and bad dialogue. Not convinced yet (don't really care about visuals).

    Re: Interstellar

    It's difficult to say whether something is emotionally manipulative on the basis of a few seconds in the trailer. It needs to be seen in the context of the film to judge that, imo. I have not cared for any of the Nolan movies I've seen (haven't seen them all) because of their emotional emptiness. If he can manage to combine compelling characters with genuine emotion and his always stunning visuals, it could be pretty awesome. We'll find out in due time. Color me hopeful.

    Re: Interstellar

    I do admire and appreciate your enthusiasm and confidence! I'm sure the movie will be interesting, but his movies are generally cold.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: July 31st, 2014 12:33 pm (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Interstellar

    Yes, his movies are generally cold, which is why I find it so interesting that he is obviously "going there" this time. We'll then find out if he actually knows how to do it! Lol.

    I just read that this year is the centenary of Dylan Thomas's birth.

    There's a big water main break at Sunset Blvd. and Plaza @ UCLA at 3:30. Department of power can't even get through to turn off the power. Matty's house is very close, but not close enough to be in danger. He'll certainly hear about it and the roads will be messed up for quite a while. FYI.

    Re: Cosmo

    For a pretty silly reason! So many better examples of things that Matt has done could have been used, but that was her experience.

    Someone on Facebook posted today that his daughter met Matt today in Costa Rica and they talked baseball trades. The location may change...

    The Martian

    The Martian has been moved up to a year from November. Pretty tight schedule.

    Re: The Martian

    Exciting. Possible spoilers here for Interstellar...










    Is anyone else amused that Matt is rumored to be a stranded astronaut in Interstellar and will be a stranded astronaut in The Martian?

    Re: The Martian

    Spoilers here? Sorry, I can't see anything. Are you talking about the Nolan fans site?
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: August 2nd, 2014 05:34 am (UTC) (Link)

    Re: The Martian

    Rumors from the Nolan fan site months ago. May not be correct (I haven't kept up with the site).

    Re: The Martian

    Yeah, that's an interesting place to check. Mostly people just guessing, but there are some educated guesses.

    Costa Rica

    Details about Matt's stay in Costa Rica - someone's definitely leaking information, including claims Matt has been seen with Mel Gibson, who has a house nearby.
